Finally got our Elkridge 37 Ultimate home today. Now the fun begins. Have a 2 page list of things to do. But for now, just getting things into their place.

Yeah. Definitely has some room. No plans to head South in your area. We have plans for Goshen next. Hopefully we will see you then.

Well Jamie - is it as big as you thought :rolleyes:

Good luck with it and we'll help ya squeeze it into the Goshen spot.

But, just to be on the safe side, perhaps you should remove everything before you head to Goshen next year !

NO spending at National Rallies. That is the new rule.

It is quite bigger than our last on. Very much so. Didn't sink in till we hooked up.

Worked on the keyless entry today. Purchased at Goshen last year and love it. Unfortunately, it is white and the new rig is white free. Didn't want to spend the money on a new unit.

Looks great! ElkRidge has come a long way in the past 4 years. Definitely a good looking unit. It looks huge! We call ours the Mammoth. You gotta come up with a "BIG" name for her.

Working on the number one mod on our list. I cannot understand why Heartland eliminate some of the cabinet doors on their kitchen cabinets. Just giant open voids. It is the first thing that we wanted to change. We were not able to use standard swing doors due to clearance issues with the light fixtures. We were also limited to the size doors available through Heartland. They discontinued the dark cherry wood in July.

We found a single door size that will fit the opening. The door now swings up to open. Not exactly what we had in mind, but so much better than the open space.

Looks good Jamie. I did the same with the same open spaces in the Cyclone.

Looks good! I'm sure cabinet doors are eliminated for cost and weight savings. ;)

Well the trailer is finally out of its winter hibernation. Had a chance to work on a few things.

Added a new Emerson Ice Maker to the outside kitchen. Fit perfect under cabinet. Target had them on sale for $50 off.

Also added a TP holder that met the wife's approval.

Finally made a decision on the backslash for the kitchen. Went with Smart Tiles from Lowes. Light weight, flexible and no grout.

One thing that always bothered me on my last 2 rigs was the exposed switches and monitors. It just took away from the look. Well today, I looked at them for the last time. I had an extra cabinet door from the kitchen sitting in the corner and I had the drawer facia from the bunkroom we took out when we added the couch. A little time and planning and problem fixed. Just need to add a knob.

Extra Cabinet and drawer facia
Used the extra frame material. It was already stained the same as the cabinet door.

Couldn't use the existing hidden hinges so we had to use a standard hinge. Doesn't look to bad

Nice Jamie.

That has been on my plate for a couple of years now, and I also have a door ready.
Still makes me wonder why a 130K Newport has the same exposed switches.

I don't know why they went away from the smoked glass door. 36681

I like being able to see the switches (and lighted ones) at a glance, yet they are hidden.

Yes. Worked the sofa in as part of the deal. Ordered from Heartland and sent in another trailer from Heartland to the dealer. When we arrived, the sofa was sitting on top of the lower bunk. It is a sofa bed. A nice one at that. My parents used it this past weekend. Sets up in about a minute.
